When I call someone, my # is showing up wrong on caller ID

Post by jazzycat » Thu Aug 09, 2012 6:34 pm

Tonight I called my fiance 3 times - twice from one ooma phone and the 3rd time from the other ooma number on the other phone, and all three times his caller ID showed DIFFERENT random numbers, not MY numbers, or my city, or my name. And the numbers were listed as cell phone numbers in other states nowhere near where I live. It's not his phone, because all the other calls coming in were listed correctly. So what is up with my ooma? Is my number somehow being hijacked, or routed through some weird internet thing? Whatever it is, it needs to be fixed! Thanks!

What do you see when you call yourself on your cell? Your own number? I suspect his carrier is having issues.

I don't think it's his phone. Whenever I call his number, there is a LONG pause before it rings. The dial tone doesn't come on, like it used to before it dials the number, and you can't even hear the tones when it dials the number. So I really think it's coming from here, not there. I just called again, and this time it said Jersey City.
